I am usually what you would call an organized, self motivated person. In high school, I always had my homework done on time, if not two days ahead of time. In college, I never once pulled an all-nighter because it simply was never necessary. And, in my career, I was able to work full time and start my own painting business on top of it.
|Yep, this list even got laminated|
How do I stay on top of things? I don't really know. I guess I'm a list maker. I have to-do lists, lists of potential painting ideas, lists of potential blog posts, lists of books to read, lists of guest bloggers, lists of expenses, and lists of income.
But, to be honest, I think it has to do with how I fill my life. You see, I almost never over commit or stretch myself too far. In my life, I always made sure to study the right amount, work the right amount, socialize the right amount, sleep the right amount, and of course, sit in front of the tv and be lazy the right amount.
I enjoy having a full schedule, but just full enough to be happy and well rounded. For most people, they would laugh at this and say it was out of their hands. And I guess for some people this is probably true...however, I have now lived 26 years on this earth and have never felt too overwhelmed with my own commitments. So, maybe part of it is our own decisions.
